Blame Comes Quickly in Moscow Subway Accident – When Will the Root Causes Be Investigated?
The Christian Science Monitor reported that the spokesperson for the Kremlin’s Investigative Committee (a police body) said:
“As it is a man-caused accident, it is obvious that there are people responsible for it, so soon there will be suspects in the case.”
Later the International Business Times published this headline:
“Moscow Subway Accident: 2 Arrested Metro Workers Failed To Properly Supervise Track Switch Repair, Authorities Say”
It seems the two arrested supervised a job where a track switch was re-wired with the wrong wire.
Twenty-one have died, over a hundred were injured, and over 1000 people had to be evacuated from the subway after the accident.
What do you think? Will discipline solve the problem? Or does a real root cause analysis need to be done?
